Air Fried Omelette Loaded Potato

About the author


My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Air Fried Omelette Loaded Potato


Air Fried Omelette Loaded Potato
Ingredients for 4 servings

  • 1200g (about 4) small Russet potatoes, baked and about 150g of potato flesh removed from each one (see directions below)
  • EGGS
    • 10 whole eggs (or combination of 5 eggs + 6 egg whites)
    • 1 tablespoon The Fit Cook Everyday seasoning (OR 1 teaspoon garlic powder + 2 teaspoons onion powder)
    • 1 tablespoon The Fit Cook Green Chile Lime seasoning (OR 2 teaspoons cumin)
    • pinch of sea salt & pepper
    • 2 green onion stalks, diced
    • 1 cup (~90g)  reduced fat shredded Mexican blend cheese (or cheddar)
  • 1 cup chopped broccolini or broccoli,
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 4 pieces of center-cut bacon, chopped (OPTIONAL but recommended for flavor – this would not make it vegetarian)
  1. Set oven (or air fryer) to 420F/216C.
  2. Poke a few holes in each potato using a fork, then wrap each potato in foil.  Bake in the oven for 1 – 1.5 hours or until the potatoes have been cooked through and can easily be pierced with a fork. Once baked allow the potatoes to cool down  enough where they can be handled.
  3. Use a small knife to trim off the top portion of the potato as it lays on its side (note: do NOT cut the potato in half).  Then take a spoon and carve out the insides of each potato but leaving a thick border of potato alongside the inner walls of the potato.  This creates a potato bowl or cup.
  4. Set air fryer (or oven) to 400F/204C.
  5. Beat eggs together with seasoning, cheese and green onion.
  6. Spray each potato with olive oil, then sprinkle with pinch of sea salt & pepper.  Add about 1 tablespoon of broccoli, bell pepper and bacon to each one, then pour in the  egg mix.  Repeat for remaining potato  cups.
  7.  Place the loaded potatoes in the air fryer basket and cook for 20 – 25 minutes, or until the egg is cooked through.  Pro-tip: for best results, gently cover each potato with aluminum foil –  create a  dome shape – then remove it the final minutes of cooking in order to brown the top.

Meal Prep Tip: For those that you will not eat right away, allow them to cool to room temperature, then tightly wrap each potato omelette in plastic wrap, then in foil and store in the freezer.
